    The Northcoast Shores was the first sandwich I ever had here and remains a fav. The Wake & Bacon and Westside Monte Cristo are amazing! I love ordering sandwiches with friends so we can share halves!

    It's not just good food; the beer list is fantastic - If you're not driving try a bottle of Aventinus (8.5% ABV)

    Paul Mackenzie Ross · October 28, 2010
  • Thomas K.

    You will have the IDIS after eating a sandwich lol

    Thomas Killings · March 27, 2013
  • Allison W.

    The Hungry Hungarian is delicious, but would be better with extra sauce to dip it in! 1 meal here is always enough for two, so I suggest sharing one or you'll have lunch for tomorrow too!

    Allison Wankowski · January 9, 2013

    They put more love into the vegan versions of stuff.
